Part of Simply Cross Stitch's collection of kits depicting Vincent Van Gogh's paintings.
Green Wheat Field with Cypress was painted the month whilst Van Gogh was voluntarily admitted to the asylum at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in 1889. It was completed a few days after he was allowed out to paint en plein air (in plain air):
After finishing the painting, Van Gogh wrote to his sister about his painting of "a field of yellowing wheat surrounded by brambles and green bushes. At the end of the field a little pink house with a tall and dark cypress tree that stands out against the distant purplish and bluish hills, and against a forget-me-not blue sky streaked with pink whose pure tones contrast with the already heavy, scorched ears, whose tones are as warm as the crust of a loaf of bread."
This counted cross stitch kit admirably captures the image painted by Van Gogh in a composition of size 27x19cm
